As the West Virginia Mountaineers join the Big 12, their baseball program is turning to a man who knows the conference well to become their 19th coach. WVU announced today that Randy Mazey, TCU’s assistant coach, will lead the Mountaineers baseball program as they enter the Big 12.
“We are delighted to welcome Randy into our Mountaineer family,” says WV athletic director Oliver Luck. "He is a blue-collar guy whose father was a coal miner, and he was raised in Johnstown, Pa. He understands the work ethic that all Mountaineers share, and in that regard he is one of us.
“Randy is a down-to-earth person who has done a great job at TCU. He knows our regional recruiting area, as well as the traditional Big 12 recruiting areas. He’s a pitching coach who understands the importance of pitching in a top-flight conference like the Big 12, and I know he will bring in an excellent group of assistant coaches. Randy is smart, very well respected in the college baseball community and understands the challenges that we will face in the Big 12.”
Mazey has served as an assistant with TCU for the last six seasons.
